Nicki Minaj‘s signature look is under scrutiny as hair stylist Terrence Davidson claims she stole his wig looks and claimed them as her own.
Davidson is filing a $30 million lawsuit claiming the “Starships” singer stole his wig designs and started marketing them under her own alias. Not only that, but Davidson claims Minaj talked him out of a multi-million dollar reality show deal because she was afraid it would ruin their partnership.
According to Davidson, he was a key element in Minaj’s success.
“Nicki Minaj is reaping great success and financial bounty reward for Terrence’s creative expertise, and he is entitled to participate in that,” Davidson’s lawyer, Christopher Chestnut, said to CNN. “Someone’s got to stand up for the artist. We applaud the fact that she’s making millions, but she’s also got to pay bounty to those whose creative designs she’s making millions off of.”
Minaj has not commented on the lawsuit.
